             Beat The Heat With Flawless Skin This Summer

Summertime is here in full force – the sun is getting stronger, the days are getting hotter, and your skin is taking the brunt of it all. This is the time when oily skin gets oilier, and dry skin gets drier. Add to it the pimples, rashes, acnes and host of other problems brought on by sweat & grime; and it’s a nightmare for your skin! But, if you follow these simple skincare tips and routines in this gruelling heat, then it’s possible to achieve and flaunt flawless skin this summer!

  • There’s no surviving the summer without a good Sunscreen. Choose a high SPF (preferably over 30) and use generously on your body whenever you are stepping out in the sun. The Arioma Sun Expert SPF 50 is a trusty pick.
  • Your skin needs a light gel-based or water-based moisturizing lotion to combat the dryness and itchiness that can be induced by heat. A good moisturizer or a brightening booster is just what you need to beat the heat.
  • Clean your face of dirt & sweat after a long day by following a cleanse-tone-moisturize skincare routine every night.
  • Don’t forget to use an exfoliating scrub at least twice a week, to get rid of all the sweat, grime and dead cells. Club Salon recommends the Life Radiance Scrub that can help you keep your skin clean this summer.
  • Use a light but effective lip balm to keep your pout hydrated at all times.
  • Wear breathable and natural fabrics so as to reduce sweating as much as possible. Your skin needs to breathe freely, so don’t clog up the pores by wearing heavy fabrics or polyester materials.
  • Hydrate, hydrate and hydrate some more. Keep drinking lots of water, fruit juices and other fluids in order to keep your body hydrated, and your skin glowing, as a result!
  • Keep your feet and hands clean and moisturised at all times. Go for a refreshing fruit-infused pedicure and manicure at your nearest Club Salon at regular intervals for best results.
  • Drop in at your nearest Club Salon outlet for a summer-friendly facial once a fortnight for soft, supple & flawless skin! We recommend the Soothing Harmonies Calm for sensitive skin, Adult Acne facial for skin suffering from breakouts or in need of hydration, and Radiance Glow facial to get rid if the unwanted tans & blemishes.

Colour Your Hair This Season

           

                                        Colour Your Hair This Season!

A person’s hair is something that contributes largely to the way he or she looks. In books or movies, disguises always primarily consist of wigs – a blonde one for a dark-haired person, or a redhead wig for a blonde. Hence, a change in the hair color means an exciting new change in your entire look. Coloring your hair is a fun way of jazzing up your entire appearance, with just a small tweak. If you are new to the whole idea of giving your original hair color a stylish makeover, then here are some techniques in which you can embrace new hair hues! So Colour Your Hair This Season!

All about Ombre

Ombre, in French, means “color that is shaded or graduated in tone”. This is a haircolor technique where a darker color gradually changes into a lighter shade in a short transition. This style typically makes your hair darkest at the roots, which slowly transitions into lighter hues at the ends. You can choose to make the style as dramatic or as subtle as you want, depending upon the number of shades you pick and the skills of your colorist. It looks edgy on all kinds of hairstyles, but the tonal spectrum comes off best on longer hair.

Big on Balayage

As per the original meaning of the French word Balayage, the technique means “to sweep” the hair with color. This technique results in a longer transition between the lighter & darker hues, and the outcome is more natural. The colorists can unleash their inner artist while working on this style, and play around with how they want to paint the hair with the soft freehand brush strokes required in Balayage. Since there is no foil-wrapping involved in the process, the hair color works naturally in open air, and hence the resulting effect doesn’t need any high maintenance either.

Happiness is… Highlights

Shy of going for an all-out change in hair color? Well, Highlights are a great way of adding a dose of fun in your hair hue without you having to take that dramatic step! You can add the illusion of depth & dimension to your tresses by lightening strategic sections of your hair using this technique. The colorist traditionally uses foil to separate parts of the hair to create contrasting sections to your natural hair color. You can either go for color that is a few shades lighter or a different tone altogether to get bold highlights, or pick a hue that’s closer to your natural hair color for a softer contrast.

For the love of Per Foil

This is the perfect technique to choose if you want just touch-ups or to color only a little section of your hair (maybe to overcome that first time jitters?). The Per Foil treatment costs you according to the number of parts you want to color, or the number of foiled sections used in the process. The foil strips keep the color or lightener out of the rest of your hair, while also trapping the heat inside so that the dye works more effectively.

So, it’s time to stop procrastinating and start planning which hue to dress up your tresses in! Visit your nearest Club Salon outlet and choose from one of the renowned global hair color brands like Inoa or Majirel to add some gorgeous color to your hair & give yourself a trendy makeover this season!

Kerastase Hair Ritual

                                                          Kerastase Hair Ritual

My love for a long mane has been since forever. Though I have managed to grow my hair to a desired length, pollution, stress and multiple chemical treatments have damaged the quality to a great extent. Added to that, repeated hairstyling and hair products has literally converted my hair to jute. It was almost like a boon when I came across the Kerastase Ritual at Club Salon.

Club Salon, an exclusive hub for Hair, Skin and Makeup has a wide range of treatments which include the Kerastase Hair Ritual, Serioxyl from L’Oréal (a denser hair treatment) and the Profiber for very damaged hair. The Skin treatments include the Microneedling from O3 plus, Meladerm treatment for pigmentation, Shine & Glow from Agelock and the Decleor Facials.

I went for the Kerastase Hair Ritual (Express) at their Sarat Bose Road salon. It would be necessary to mention that I had styled my hair the day before which left my hair heavily tangled, dry and lifeless. The Kerastase Ritual is carried out in a special Hair & Scalp Institute in the Salon, also known as the Kerastase room.

 

The ritual started with my therapist, diagnosing my hair with a special device. The diagnosis consisted of a scalp diagnosis followed by a fibre diagnosis. The device was connected to my therapists’ phone where I could follow the diagnosis along with him. As expected, my hair was extremely damaged with almost the highest erosion level.

My hair was first untangled and washed with the Kerastase Fibre Architecte Shampoo followed by Ciment Thermique shampoo. Since my hair fibre has thinned, I was suggested products that would strengthen it. The next step was the Fusio Dose. It is a Booster Brilliance by Kerastase which restores the radiance and shine of the hair. My hair was treated with the booster dose and locked using the Lait Vital conditioner which stayed for 15-20 minutes post which the products were rinsed off. Finally my therapist used the Fibre Architecte serum and my hair was blow dried.

My hair was visibly softer and shinier. In fact I felt a reduction hair breakage as well. I was advised the Fusio Dose after 15 days to retain the effect and also strengthen my hair. The Kerastase Hair Ritual is indeed quite interesting and miraculously improves the hair quality to a great extent even after one session. I would highly recommend this.

Luxury Hairspa

For every women hair care is a must. And no matter how much you take care of your hair at home by applying oil, conditioner and so many other things,I  feel a pampering session for your hair at the salon is a must at times. A Luxury Hairspa at a salon completely changes the way your hair feels.

My hair has recently become extremely dry, frizzy an dull and a hair spa was long due. And just then I was invited by Club Salon to experience one of their Luxury Hairspas. And who would say a no right. So on a sunny afternoon a delighted me visited the CLUB SALON, Bosepukur branch to get my much awaited hair spa.

The salon was simple, clean and very sophisticated. I was greeted warmly by the staff at Club Salon and after assessing my hair type and condition my therapist told me the Vertilizing Hair Spa of LOREAL would be perfect for me. all the pampering started in a bit.

First my hair was shampooed with the Loreal spa shampoo and then conditioned. Shampooing at a salon always feels better just because of the extra time and care they take to wash all the dirt and grime off your hair.

After that I was seated comfortably and the actual spa started. My therapist told me I have a lot of dust accumulated in my scalp(a common thing for all women leaving in mega cities). So she used a Purifine first which would help to remove the dust from my hair and the she used the vitalizing cream for dry and dull hair. With utmost care she sectioned all my hair and applied the cream to the entire hair and then massaged it in for almost 30 minutes. She massaged the entire scalp perfectly for the product to soak in.She also gave me a quick shoulder and back massage which completely made me feel relaxed and rejuvenated. After the massage it was time for the steam.So my hair was covered with a shower cap and the steamer was placed. This is to ensure the product penetrates better into your scalp.And finally my hair was washed. I could already sense how light and soft my hair was feeling.

My therapist then blow dryed my hair and styled it amazingly. I was truly mesmerized by the results. My hair was back to life and felt extremely soft and beautiful. It was an amazing experience at the CLUB SALON & I was also told about some basic hair care tips I should follow to maintain my hair at home.

The entire Luxury Hairspa is for about and hour or so and after the treatment you will clearly understand the difference.

I was extremely satisfied with the therapy and needless to say a completely de-stressed and happy me left the salon with extreme satisfaction. I have made up my mind to visit the Club salon every month and give my hair the daily dose of nourishment and care.

I would totally recommend to Club salon to all of you who are planning to get a wonderful hair spa. You can select from the wide range of therapies the salon has to offer and Im sure you won’t be disappointed.

PROFESSIONAL SHAMPOO VS NORMAL SHAMPOO

Professional shampoo vs normal shampoo has a lot of significance, specially for clients who are product specific or have specific concerns for their hair. When hair care professionals works on your hair, they tend to be able to tell what type of hair you have, based on their training and their level of experience working with other clients.

Needless to say, when a professional suggests a shampoo for your specific hair type, chances are that it will be the correct choice. For example, if you have only slightly dry hair that requires a mild shampoo, your hairdresser should be able to recommend the correct formula to meet the needs of your hair.

Salon formulas are prepared with more expensive ingredients, which is why the amount you pay is such a drastic difference from what you would pay for supermarket shampoo selections. There is no doubt that those salon formulas can pamper the hair quite a bit. Hence this creates an important difference between Professional shampoo vs normal shampoo.

However, if the wrong choice is made for your particular hair type, you may very well have spent a big chunk of money for some unsatisfactory results.The most important factor to consider when selecting any shampoo is if you are purchasing the correct formula for your hair type. Deciding if the end result of a salon formula shampoo is worth the expense is ultimately a personal choice. The best known ones being Loreal Professional range, Kerastase, Profiber range among others.

Whereas in Normal Shampoo,lots of ingredients that are harsh on your hair sound similar to products that are nourishing for your hair.Take for example the common ingredient sodium laureth sulfite, that creates the “safe” sudsing effect in the shampoo.

Many companies have come up with versions of this ingredient that sound very similar but aren’t so great for your hair, such as ammonium laurel sulfate, ammonium laureth sulfate, or sodium laurel sulfate. These are actually harsh chemicals that strip your hair of natural oils, essentially drying your hair out.

The typical pH of hair ranges from 4.5-5.5 and averages at about 5.0. Salon grade shampoos are tested and have a pH that range from 5 to 7, which is considered neutral. Drug store grade shampoos range greatly from 4-9 on the pH scale. At this point you might as well be washing your hair with baking soda which has a pH of 8.4.

So, how could these products be making my hair so soft? Common client question. The answer? Fillers. Fillers can be anything at all to “take up room” in the shampoo so that it costs the company less money to create the product. Ingredients such as wax and animal fat among many other gross products that leave a build-up on the hair shaft that gives the illusion that your hair is softer when it’s really not.

Hence get your Professional Hair care range & feel what your hair was missing till now!

 

 

 

 

 

POST HOLI CARE

Holi is definitely an colorful festival but it leaves behind a harsh effect on both our skin & hair. So we give you few tips with us you can enjoy this Holi without any guilt. Post Holi care is essential & is important for all age groups.

First lets get started with some easy tips:

Moisturiser :
* Apply a good moisturizer or olive oil to your face, leave it on for 10 mins, take a cotton pad to remove it off and then rinse with cold water.

Condition:
* Use a deep conditioning treatment for your hair. Mix a little hair conditioner with oil, apply it all over your hair and wear a shower cap. Leave it on for 15 mins, rinse off with warm water.

Bleach:
* Use yogurt to remove off the stubborn colour, yogurt has natural bleaching properties, apply natural yogurt on your skin and rinse off.

 

 

Now some very important tips to keep in mind for Post Holi Care:
1. Use liquid soap, applying it very gently on your body. For tough colours, opt for home remedies to deal with it or you can visit a parlour too.

2. Home remedies like applying lemon juice directly on to your skin; curd and sandalwood mixture is great; and you can also make a turmeric and white flour paste, keep it on for 15-20 mins, and then wash it away with non-boiled milk. This mixture can be applied on all areas with colour after making it bit wet with plain water.

3. To clean your face, use olive oil on cotton to remove the Holi colour ‘make-up’, but only after thoroughly washing your face with clean water. Again, opt for home-made scrubs like those using white flour to get rid of the tougher colour stains. You can also use a mild scrub or make a natural sugar scrub.

4. Avoid using exfoliates or bath salts for 48 hours after playing Holi, since your skin will very sensitive.

5. Do not use steam or sauna for the next three days as well, since the body can absorb remaining colour on your skin, as the steam opens up your pores. 

6. Going for a skin facial is a good idea post-Holi, but opt for a medi-facial, which is bleach and steam free and avoids chemicals, that too, only after 48 hours of playing Holi.

Enjoying in this colourful festival is obvious but we have to make sure that the Post Holi Care routine is followed strictly.

Hope you all had a fun and colorful Holi…  

 

 

 

HAIR COLOUR

Hair Colour is a trend cum need in today’s world. It not only helps you look better but definetely increases your confidence. But it is always Hair Colour & Care that should be in one’s mind before taking the leap.

The main advantages of Hair Colour-

Enhance your appearance:

If you are tired of the same old look, you can enhance your appearance by coloring your hair. Lighter hair colour gives you a fresher appearance and makes you look younger; while darker hair makes for a more mature and dramatic look.

Gives your look a New defitnition:

 Whether it is highlights or a full-headed hair colour, this allows your hair for a change of appearance. This change could be as dramatic or as subtle as you want, depending on the color or shade you choose.

Customization:

Temporary hair colour is a bon for women! For instance, you can decide to wear a wild shade in preparation for a night out with friends then wash it off as you prepare for work.

 Taking Care of Coloured Hair:

Now taking care of colored hair is no more a tedious task. Let’s have a look at the most favored tips on how to take care of colored hair.

1. Rinse your Hair with a Protecting Shampoo:

After colouring your hair, always remember to wash your hair with the special “colour protecting” shampoo. This specially created shampoo will not wash away the colour and will help the colour molecules to set in better. Rinse the colour thoroughly using cold water. Hot water will further damage your hair and take away the shine, making your hair dry. So remember to keep it cool.

2. Condition with a Color Protecting Conditioner:

A good conditioner is very important to maintain the moisture balance in your hair. Since your hair has been treated with chemicals like ammonia, therefore always use a “colour protecting conditioner”. This will nourish it and provide its natural shine and lustre.

3.Deep Conditioning:

Go back to the old and famous condition method of using hot oils. Use olive oil, almond oil or coconut oil to deep condition your hair.

4.Spa Treatment:

Take Hair Spas regularly, or hair packs from professional salons.

5.Conserve Your Colour:

For your colour to last longer, always use leave in conditioners after washing your hair. If possible, wear a hat or a hair sunblock spray while going out in the sun.

6.Avoid Blow Drying:

Avoid the use of blow dryer and let your hair dry naturally. If you have to use, then switch to cool setting to dry your hair.

7.Swim with Caution:

Chlorine is very harmful for coloured hair. It can alter the actual colour of your hair. So avoid setting into the pool just after colouring your hair. And if you do, always wear a swimming cap before you step in.

8.Touch Up Trick:

If you need touch ups, do it every 3 to 4 weeks. For a near-perfect touch up, always use the colour mixture and apply it using a cotton ball dipped in colour mixture or use a brush. Follow the same rinsing process with cold water as before to avoid damage.
